What People Say About Dr. Artemus Cox III, MD

This was my second surgery performed by Dr. Cox, and once again he has accomplished the seemingly impossible considering the structure and repeated failings of my nose. He's people skills are impeccable, and his work is of course flawless. I find myself recommending all my friends to him when I hear of their deviated septums. My family has counted on him for three nose surgeries now and would gladly do it again.

It was simple enough, I explained my issues with Dr. Cox. He discussed a few options with me and after a few preliminary over-the-counter options, we decided on the best way to help my situation. Thanks to Dr. Cox I can breath much better and as a bonus, my nose looks better than it ever has.

I came to Dr. Cox a few months ago when I was displeased with the hump I had on my nose. At the consultation, he explained exactly what he could do to correct the hump, gave me all of the information I needed and answered all of my questions in every detail. Two months later after surgery and my nose looks better than I ever thought it could. I am more than satisfied with my results and I could not have asked for a better Surgeon to do the job!

My experience with Dr. Cox and his Staff wast the best. I would give everything that the did for me a 10 out of 1-10 with 10 being the best. I was not aware that my nose and breathing was in such a bad state. Dr. Cox and his staff explained and gave me complete and clear information before and after the surgery and before anything was done. At my first time meeting Dr. Cox he made me feel at ease, have a great interaction, and gained my trusts. I will always be thankful t...

I had been to 30 something doctors in a year and a half, with no for sure care plan for this ulcer in my nose. Dr. Cox, went the extra mile to try and find out what was wrong and then to go ahead and take away the bad tissue and do a skin graft. During that year and a half my pain level had been at a 8 and 9 and 10. My pain level is now at a 0, my nose is a little different, but who cares, I am without pain and can resume my life, a busy life!!!! Thanks for helping me...

Dr. Cox completely rebuilt the entire top half of my ear. He did an amazing job. My ear looks better than I could have possibly imagined. Not only is he an amazing plastic surgeon, but he has the best bedside manners of any doctor Ive ever met. He takes time to explain everything in great detail, and listens to all my concerns. I have never met a doctor that showed such concern, and that I could get in touch with at any given time. He always responds back within a day!! Thank you Dr. Cox!
